Spiceworks Spiceworld Conference – Business or Party? #spiceworksaustin #spiceworks #weeklywatch
no… no… not that Spiceworld…
I first heard of Spiceworks, over 6 years ago. Someone told me there was a free program for Help Desk tracking. They were right.
Today’s Weekly Watch, is on the Spiceworks Spiceworld Conference in Austin, TX.
If you would have told me back then, that I would have been using Spiceworks to run my Help Desk, my tech inventory, monitor my toner levels, keep track of software licensing, remove unwanted software, and be attending a conference in Austin, TX… I would have never believed you. But here I am, sitting in a hotel in Austin, TX after my first day at Spiceworld!
Guess what? It rocks.
First, the software itself is 100% free, and so is EVERYTHING that it does.
Second, the staff from Spiceworks here at Spiceworld are amazing. Nice, helpful… and more…
Third, the food and drinks are all free too. Did I mention how FREE this is?
Sure, the conference cost some cash. $399. But it could have been $199 if I would have bought early.
They have provided shuttles to and from the airport and to and from the convention center. Free breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner. They have free beer, free pop, free wireless, and did I mention the free swag?
Check this out…
Yeah, that’s the ‘preview’ day. The “real” conference doesn’t even start until tomorrow.
I have nothing but good to say about this conference. Because of this, I will now have to write an entire separate article on Spiceworks itself.
If you have a chance to check out the software, do it!
